How The Heights Is Spending Its Snow Day

Most of Boston College has been shut down Tuesday due to a blizzard predicted to drop a total of 1-3 feet of snow on the Greater Boston area. While many students will choose to stay in bed and watch Netflix all day (which isn’t actually a bad idea), The Heights’ editorial board will be spending its day out of class in the following ways:

Foraging for berries and firewood while desperately trying to stave off the inevitable wolf attacks.

Sleeping, then photoshopping a snowman into a picture outside because I lack the actual skill to build a snowman, then going back to sleep.

Playing NHL, getting too lazy to make hot chocolate and just eating the marshmallows, and then going down in a blaze of glory in what some historians are already calling The Snowball Fight of the Century.

Alec Greaney, Assoc. Copy Editor

Obviously using this extremely valuable time off to catch up on schoolwork and praying that my house doesn’t lose power. If that happens, I’ll spend my snow day looking for friends basking in generator-powered warmth on campus.
